Autumn and Caroline are two very different women leading very different lives. On the surface, they would appear to share absolutely nothing in common- Autumn is an idealistic dreamer with an obsession with arts and crafts, while Caroline is a high- maintenance social climber with ambitions of bagging a wealthy husband. But when the two women meet by chance while waiting in an airport terminal, not only do they discover the one thing they never imagined they would have in common, but they are also forced to reexamine the values which made the two so different in the first place.
